I am totally unaware how to debug this. But i would like to tell how the Instances and Volumes page looks like: Instance name: Ubuntu, IP address : there is blank, Size: 512MB RAM | 1 VCPU | 0 Disk, Status: Error, Task: Networking, Power State: No State. I am sorry if this is too simple question

please paste the result of "nova show <vm-uuid>" from the CLI. To find the <vm-uuid> you can look through the dashboard or from "nova list"

Have a look in the "Log" tab for the instance and see what are the errors and go from there. If it's not possible to see the tab, that means an instance is failed before the hypervisor layer. In such case, I would suggest you to through the log of Nova. The default location is "/var/log/nova". You can find plenty of logs there; so, just find an error message inside one of the log and go from there. The promising places to look are "nova-scheduler" and "nova-compute".
